Clothespin magnets

I finished my first bag of 50 clothespin magnets and I thought I would show you a picture. I plan on giving these, along with the marble magnets, to the boys' teachers and a few coworkers of mine for Christmas. I just love making these little magnets. I would like to make many more of these for myself. I think they would be perfect to use at school to display student work. I could hot glue them to the wall. Yes, that is exactly what I will do. I need to buy some more clothespins. I'll add that to my growing list to pick up at the Dollar Tree!

Nancy asked: What are you using for the color? Are you actually painting them, or using some kind of paper decoupage? Do you buy the magnets at dollar tree too.
Nancy, I use magazine pages to decoupage onto the clothespins. I find areas in a magazine that I like and outline the clothespin, cut it out, and decoupage on to the clothespin. I order the magnets online.

  2. These are sooooo cute Susan! I am sure they are going to be great hits this coming Christmas. What a fun project for summer too.
